Happy 2012!

Whew, I'll be honest and say that I am so glad that the holidays are over! Call me Scrooge, but I just wasn't feeling it this year. I blame it on my complete exhaustion and the morning sickness that is STILL showing itself even after week 15. Yep, you read that right.... still got it. *sarcasm font* YAY *end sarcasm font*
I couldn't even bring myself to really go shopping this year for everyone's presents. With the initial attempts I made, I ended up shopping for 1 hour before having to go home.... therefore, I had to do ALL my shopping in one day and it was pretty much down to the wire-it's now or never shopping.
BUT, on a much happier note, I just keep thinking that by this time next year we will have our sweet baby with us for the holidays and he/she will be 6 months old by that time! AHHH now that Christmas I will look forward to!
I will say that I am super excited that my hubs got me a gift certificate to Z's salon and spa for a prenatal massage. Everyone I have talked to said to use it before the third trimester or else you will be miserable while laying there and then the massage is pointless. I'm hoping to make an appointment by the end of this month! Can't Wait!

I am officially 15 weeks and 2 days today. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and got to hear the sweet swish of the babies heart. Dr. said it sounds like it's around 150 so speculate all you want if you follow old wives tales :)
How far along? 15 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain: 5 pounds eek!
Maternity clothes? I need to go shopping for maternity clothes so bad so I have talked Nick into taking me to breakfast on Saturday and then a day of shopping! Score!
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: It's still about the same. I'm not as exhausted at night anymore and can now stay up most nights until 10:00! Watch out! But I still get up to go to the bathroom about 2 times a night.
Best moment this week: When I got to hear the heartbeat at the Dr. on Wednesday. I swear no matter how crappy you feel all day almost everyday, hearing or seeing your baby is the best thing in the entire world.
Miss Anything? Being comfortable laying on the couch. Sounds weird but it hurts to lay on my back.
Movement: Still not yet, but Dr said I should be able to feel it in a couple of weeks :)
Food cravings: No cravings really but I have gotten my appetite back so that is a start!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Raw meat is a bit questionable but I have been able to eat it when it's cooked. I just have to make hubby cook it instead of me!

Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Still sick, although the days are fewer and farther apart.
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy mostly until I have a sick moment then I get all whiney and complainy
Looking forward to: FEBRUARY 1ST! Only 26 days and we will get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl. I have some suspicions but I'm not telling. I am still trying to decide if I want to do anything fun to tell our family and friends... I guess I better get on that!
Oh and once we find out, we get to do fun stuff like register and start decorating the nursery! I've already got ideas but it will just take some putting together!
